NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #249 ~ 11-28-20]

Pictured: Fela Kuti.

Saturday — when Fela presented his ”Comprehensive Show” complete with the Egypt 80 dancers and an enormous, ritual conical “cigar” presumably filled with marijuana and various native herbs — was also mainly a dance night, with the most diverse audience of the week; listeners traveled from all over Lagos and beyond to enjoy the music. For some attendees, a visit to the Shrine, with its marijuana smoking, go-go dancers, and antigovernment lyrics, was an act of social rebellion in itself. Others came to engage, examine, or debate Fela’s political philosophy. Still other visitors were content merely to enjoy the music, irrespective of its political sentiments. Each show concluded at dawn with Fela pausing before the shrine in the rear of the building. With intense flames leaping into the air, the “Chief Priest of Shrine” paused — flanked by two young male attendants — to salute his ancestors and Pan-Africanist heroes, before returning home as the rest of Lagos awakened with the dawn.

— Michael Veal, Fela: The Life And Times Of An African Musical Icon.

Nigerians had (and now have again, albeit in rebuilt form) The Shrine. Denizens of the darker end of Brush St. in downtown Detroit have The Purple Bat Lounge. These two entities, half a world distant from one another, are less dissimilar than one might suspect initially. In both cases patrons tend to stay all night, regardless of curfews and legislated hours for Last Call, as the prospect of returning home before dawn represents nothing less than a foolhardy impulse. Both establishments bear renown out of proportion to their humble settings. And both places benefit from associations with charismatic figures: One attended The Shrine to see, hear and dance to Fela – and you can only find Lee-Roy at The Purple Bat Lounge. Need proof?

Pictured: The New York Dolls.

Mind you, the name they switched to, New York Dolls, is itself rich in camp associations. Although the name was actually inspired by a toy hospital in Manhattan, ‘doll’ was by 1971 already a quaint term for ‘cute girl’ or ‘broad’ (as in the musical Guys and Dolls or the Swinging Sixties term ‘dolly birds’). But it also evoked Valley of the Dolls, Jacqueline Susann’s 1966 pulp best-seller about showbiz starlets in Hollywood, which then became a hugely successful movie melodrama. In the book and movie, ‘dolls’ is the nickname for pills: the uppers and downers to which one of the actresses becomes addicted. By 1970, the already absurd film had a parody sequel in the form of Russ Meyer’s glorious camp fantasia Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, in which an all-female rock band arrive in LA and become embroiled in druggy, polysexual decadence. So the name New York Dolls neatly compacted the city of their birth and source of their spirit with a campy, outmoded ideal of feminine beauty, plus a hint of chemical excess.

Pictured: James Brown.

James Brown had the whole week there at the Apollo. Go to the Apollo and see James Brown, damn fucking right. I mean, who would turn that down? He was a piece of work. So on the button. We thought we were a tight band! The discipline in the band impressed me more than anything else. On stage, James would snap his fingers if he thought somebody had missed a beat or hit a wrong note, and you could see the player’s face fall. He would signal the fine he had imposed with his fingers. These guys would be watching his hands. I even saw Maceo Parker, the sax player who was the architect of James Brown’s band–who I finally got to work with in the Winos–get fined about fifty bucks that night. It was a fantastic show. Mick’s looking at his foot moves. Mick took more notice than I did that day–lead singer, dancing, he calls the shots.

Pictured: Lux Interior of The Cramps.

On June 16, the Cramps ran up against psyches of the decidedly altered kind when they travelled northeast to Napa for a concert like no other. An encounter with electro-punks the Screamers led to a conversation about an Easter dance the latter had played at Camarillo State Mental Hospital near Los Angeles…Intrigued by the sheer strangeness of the idea and the Screamers’ accounts of performing before an audience of the pathologically unhinged, the Cramps managed to arrange a similar event at short notice with the administrators at Napa. “We always wanted to play at a mental institution because we always had a problem with audiences not being quite what we’d like them to be,” explained Lux. “We thought if we went to a mental institution, the audience would contribute – and they really did! There were male and female inmates humping each other on the ground. It was the most bizarre show we’ve ever done. Those people just went crazy – doing everything you’d imagine people in a mental institution would do. There were people licking the walls, people laying on each other and coming up and talking to us while we were playing, but mainly it was people dancing the weirdest dances you’ve ever seen.”

— Dick Porter, Journey To The Center Of The Cramps.

This Halloween, as celebrated by DJ’s Reeshard & Lee-Roy at the Purple Bat Lounge, commemorated not only a favorite holiday but also the 7th anniversary of No Condition Is Permanent joining the weekly Luxuria Music schedule. Lee-Roy, as regular listeners well know, has been on Reeshard’s case for weeks in an effort to add guest stars to the broadcast. Of course, Reeshard wouldn’t take the dog seriously, especially as all Lee-Roy’s suggestions to date died some time ago. Learning that bartender LaWanda‘s iPad contained a Ouija Board app allowed the plucky pit bull to turn a stumbling block into a stepping stone. What happened next really needs to be heard (especially if you grew up in Detroit), along with the more than 3 dozen Halloween novelty favorites spun at volume throughout the evening. But you can hear it, oh yes you can, simply by clicking immediately below…

Pictured: Jeff Beck (l.) & Keith Relf of the Yardbirds, from Blow-Up (1966, dir. M. Antonioni).

According to rock legend, the Who’s stage act was inspired by a lecture Townshend attended by Gustav Metzger, during which the auto-destructive Dadaist smashed a double bass. According to Townshend it was an accident that became a spectacle. While playing a gig at the Railway Tavern in Harrow & Wealdstone in September 1964, he cracked his guitar against the ceiling while ‘getting into feedback’, and when the audience started laughing he hid his embarrassment by pretending to have meant it and proceeding to destroy the guitar. The next day the place was packed.

— Richard Weight, MOD: A Very British Style.

In the run-up to Halloween (the only holiday endorsed by NCIP) this past Saturday, The Madison Theatre is running a fabulous, ever-so-creepy Barbara Steele double feature. DJ Lee-Roy still spends most of a given Saturday evening on the Outdoor Patio™, located adjacent to the back door of the Purple Bat Lounge, watching Lotsa Poppa throw exotic insects at the carriage-lamp-model bug zapper. Within the bar, 4 impeccably crafted sets of music designed to be played at lease-breaking volume are stitched together by Lee-Roy & (mostly) co-host Reeshard. A great time is had by all concerned. A recorded transcription of said time is now available — just down there a few pixels — for those of you at home who desire the Purple Bat experience, but don’t want to get anything on your outfit.

Summer wasn’t always like this. It had a decent upbringing and a reasonable education. It lived in harmony with the other seasons, and sometimes they traded off bits of one another’s weather. Just where it went wrong is uncertain. except that it happened in our lifetime. It was all those cars, all those drugs, all that red meat, all that money it sucked up and vaporized. Summer only remembers luxury and rage…Summer is mindless. Summer is nothing but fun. Everybody loves summer.

— Luc Sante, “Summer with a Thousand Julys,” Maybe The People Would Be The Times.

Well, everybody but Lee-Roy, who spent much of last Saturday evening beating the heat by lounging on the Outdoor Patio™ just a few steps beyond the alley entrance to the Purple Bat Lounge. Co-host Reeshard could deal with the sustaining temperatures, but then he wasn’t locked inside a fur coat. Great music played, cocktails were served and served again, and Uncle Morty’s truck roared up at the halfway point with a cargo of specific treats for those so inclined. Much more happened beyond that, but you’ll have to click on the arrow immediately below to hear the rest…

Given the heavy demand for dub mixes from sound systems preparing for weekend dances, it is important to realize that these mixes were improvised on the spot, with a minimum of pre-planning. Most dub mixing was done on Friday evenings, when producers deposited their master tapes with engineers, and sound system operators gathered at the studio so that each could be given a unique mix of a currently popular tune. Under these circumstances, an engineer might create dozens of different mixes of a given tune in one remix session…they usually improvised their way through dozens of mixes of the same track. King Jammy’s approach was typical of most engineers: “I don’t plan it before I go into the mix, it just comes creatively. I don’t plan like ‘Okay, I’m going to take out the bass at two minutes’ or whatever. It’s just an instant creativity.”

— Michael Veal, Dub: Soundscapes and Shattered Songs in Jamaican Reggae.

The heat was still in effect down Brush Street way last Saturday evening. Given co-host Lee-Roy’s confinement within a fur coat on a 24/7 basis, he spent only as much time in the Purple Bat Lounge’s DJ booth as was minimally required of him. Otherwise, the most famous pit bull in downtown Detroit was content to hang in back at the bar’s Outdoor Patio™, leaving Reeshard to do the bulk of content delivery (per usual). The bar’s patrons barely noticed the difference. Which begs the obvious question: Outside of gun fire or last call, what do they notice? Never you mind — all concerned enjoyed themselves enormously, and now you can too, simply by clicking a few pixels south of these words…

Pictured: Phil Manzanera.

Phil Manzanera was the only posh member of Roxy [Music]…Manzanera had enjoyed a cosmopolitan youth flitting between various South American countries and his boarding school in London…”Everything went flat,” recalls Manzanera of 1968-71. “A lot of musicians were…out of it, so they weren’t even bothering to wear kaftans or other hippy stuff, which had been stylish in their own way.” …The bearded Manzanera came across as a snazzed-up, tidier version of a late-sixties freak, wearing Antony Price-designed sunglasses that looked like fly’s eyes.

— Simon Reynolds, Shock And Awe.

Last Saturday evening retained summer’s swelter, despite the calendar having moved into autumn. Co-host Lee-Roy, by way of response, occupied the DJ booth at the Purple Bat Lounge for exactly as long as was required of him, preferring to inhabit the bar’s Outdoor Patio™ for the balance. Walking the knife’s edge between enthusiasm and disgust, Reeshard maintained musical continuity throughout, breaking stride only to lean through the bar’s (otherwise unused) front door, in order to hail Uncle Morty’s Midnight Mobile Dispensary™ as it cruised down Brush Street. All told, a pleasurable waste of an otherwise perfectly good night on the town for those capable of remembering it…but who talks to them? Better you should experience it for yourself, simply by clicking immediately below…

Pictured: U-Roy.

‘It was in 1969, around the time reggae was starting to hit big, and Tubby’s dance was ram. There was a buzz of excitement – like expectation – because word had got round all week that Tubby’s was going to do something special that night. Although nobody knew what it was going to be, Tubby’s sound was so innovative you knew it was going to be spectacular. He had four dub plates he’d made from Treasure Isle rocksteady tunes, and this is at a time when you never have the rhythm on the record itself – no dub or version yet, A- and B-sides were both straight vocal.

‘But Tubby did it quietly. Him and U-Roy start the dance off as normal, and after a while he play “You Don’t Care for Me at All” by the Techniques, then when he lift it up to start it back from the beginning again he’d switched it to the dub version, and after a couple of lines of the original all the crowd could hear was pure riddim, then U-Roy come in toasting, and they went nuts. He had four dub plates, and for the rest of the night it must have been just them he play.’

— Dennis Alcapone, as quoted in Lloyd Bradley’s Bass Culture.

OK, it’s been one of THOSE weeks. Which is why you’re only seeing the post for last Saturday’s episode of NCIP today, nearly in time for this coming Saturday’s show. Better late than…yada, yada. Still, good things come to those who wait and this one is a pleasure-seeking missile, destined for your house. Lee-Roy & Reeshard spent the past Saturday evening disturbing the peace with all the resources at their disposal, paramount among the latter being 3 dozen tunes designed to soundtrack any and all ill-considered decisions. So, click just down there, spark up and get ready to murder two unrecoverable hours in grand style. We wouldn’t have it any other way…
